The Museum

The Moray Eel can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:

"Moray eels can often be seen sticking just their heads out from between two rocks. When unsuspecting prey approaches, the dart out to snatch it up into their sharp-toothed mouths. Once moray eels have their teeth in you, it's hard to get away, making moray-eel bites no trifling matter. Their long, finless bodies are covered in tough, snakelike skin that often gets used as leather."


Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:

"I caught a moray eel! And I was like, "No way! Deal!""
